ArticlePic1Frankfort Semester Internships

The Frankfort Semester Internship Program is a major AIKCU (Association of Independent Kentucky Colleges and Universities) initiative that seeks to enhance students’ academic, civic, and professional skills through internship experiences, public policy symposia, academic seminars, and exposure to the ideas and perspectives of a variety of notable citizens. Participating students live, work and study in Frankfort during the spring semester under the guidance of AIKCU intern coordinator Richard Wilson, a longtime higher education reporter and bureau chief for the Louisville Courier-Journal and a member of the Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame.

AIKCU interns have worked in the legislative arena directly for legislators — responding to constituent inquiries, assisting in the crafting and passage of legislation, tracking bills, and performing other duties integral to the legislative process — as well as for lobbying firms, associations, and in a variety of state agencies.

The 30 hour per week internship is enhanced by an academic component consisting of two upper-division evening seminars. Interns will be eligible for up to fifteen hours of classroom credit in accordance with their home campus’s policies. Interns receive a monthly living stipend during their internship experience.

Interested students may apply online or download the 2014 Frankfort Semester Internship Application (pdf).

Study Abroad

English-Speaking Union Student Scholar Program

Each summer, the English-Speaking Union in Kentucky sends several students from the state to study in England and Scotland. This is a 3-4 week program with all expenses paid. Students need only provide spending money. Two students from Alice Lloyd College will be allowed to apply.

The Kentucky Branch of The English-Speaking Union will award a limited number of scholarships to qualified Kentucky college students and Kentucky middle and high school teachers for courses offered at institutions in the United Kingdom in the summer of 2015. Scholarship awards will include tuition, lodging and two meals daily for three-week courses at the institutions chosen by the scholarship winners. Scholarships also include one week’s lodging in London and a cash allowance which may or may not cover the costs of travel and incidentals (in 2014, the allowance was $1,800).

Scholarship awards are made by the Kentucky Branch’s Scholarship Committee after reviews of information submitted by the applicants and interviews with the finalists.

Student Scholarships: Student scholarships will be awarded for studies in English Literature, History and Social Sciences at Oxford, Cambridge and Edinburgh University for the summer of 2014. All students must be at least a junior with one year to complete at their home institution as an undergraduate after they return from the aforementioned British university of their choice.

College students must submit their applications through their college representatives. Click here to view contact information of college representatives. Each participating university holds internal competitions to select no more than two students to send to the state-level competition. Every campus sets its own internal deadline, but the applications for the state-level competition must be received by November 20, 2014 by the Branch Scholarship Coordinator, whose address is below.

International Enrichment/Semester in London Program

The Semester in London Program provides students the opportunity to study in London for one semester. Participants complete a three-hour course in British Life and Culture and several additional credit hours in courses ranging from Shakespeare to Seminar in International Business. For further information regarding these programs, please check with the Dean of the College or the Director of the International Enrichment Program.

The existence of this program is dependent upon sufficient funding.

Missions Abroad

Many of our students have participated in mission trips to various locations in Central and South America, as well as in the Caribbean. For more information about mission opportunities, please contact our BCM Director, Matthew Stewart, at matthewstewart@alc.edu.

Public Speaking at ALC

From the Campus Crusaders, who represented Caney Creek Community Center on their fundraising tours of the United States, to the dozens of students who address convocation audiences today – there is a long and rich tradition of public speaking at Alice Lloyd College.

Students begin their exposure to public speaking through the general education program and continue to present in many classes throughout their college tenure.

Public speaking prospects abound for interested students, including opportunities to introduce speakers, organize and present at student events and convocations, lead school groups and other guests on campus tours, host radio programs, and represent ALC student organizations at state, regional, and national conferences. Students may also participate each spring in the James V. Mongiardo Public Speaking Competition, one of the college’s endowed awards.

Community Service and Continuing Education

Alice Lloyd College has always maintained a strong commitment to community service. In serving this purpose, many cultural convocations and workshops are open to full participation by the larger community.

Many people benefit from ALC’s continuing educational opportunities: the senior citizen who enjoys learning new and creative uses of leisure time; the housewife who wants to continue her education; and the employee who wants to pursue a degree for job advancement.

The community has access to all the Appalachian resources housed in the McGaw Library and Learning Center. The resources may be used by high school Appalachian studies programs or for scholarly research.
